    Just a couple more weeks until our FIRST welcome home! I just wanted to say thanks for this thread and all the work you have put into it. We may not get what we want when we get there, but at least we know what to ask for! Thanks to everyone who has shared their input and their photos. You all ROCK!

    I noticed "7228 standard view (studio) post # 727 " is in the page 1 list but not highlighted on the 'views actually reported' map..

    Regardless, thanks for the time you have spent creating and maintaining this!!! :thumbsup2

    What is easier to get booked at the 7 month mark for BLT for this Dec? 4 day 1Br or Studio? LV or MK view? We would like a monorail resort.:lovestruc

    LV will be easier than MK view, that is for sure. As far as the other, I really don't know. I know that many have said that BLT is pretty full right now for the first two weeks of December and that even owners are having to wait list both studios and 1 bedrooms. Check out the resort availability board as it can show you dates that were NOT available when people called, for both types of room.

    We stayed at BLT last month (3/24-28). We had booked a 1 BR Lake View and requested "highest floor, even numbered room, north side". When we checked-in we were completely on the opposite side of the resort. We were in 8134 -- 11th floor facing the Contemporary. Not quite what we asked for, but we really liked it.

    Looking straight off the balcony, we could see the Contemporary, Wilderness Lodge, Spaceship Earth, Tower of Terror, Sorcer's hat, top of Tree of Life, Everest, Swan & Dolphin. To the left was about 1/2 of Bay Lake. To the right was the Grand Floridian, Seven Seas Lagoon, monorail line, and the MK docks and monorail station. We watched Illuminations from the balcony one night with our own music on my iPhone.

    Here are a couple of pics.

    Nice view! I am not sure that the people that assign the rooms know what "north facing" is.... I would be happy to get any even numbered room seeing your photos! Thanks for sharing them!

    It would not surprise me if a majority of BLT Lake View room requests are for "high floor, even number, north facing." There are only so many villas that satisfy all three conditions, so it doesn't surprise me that there is a lot of competition for those villas.

    Wow, that's amazing. We really enjoyed the view and being close to the elevator.

    Didn't see this room on this thread yet. It is a 2 BD MK view, that looks out directly over the sidewalk coming into BLT. Good view of MK, GF and PR, but mostly of the parking lot below.

    Interesting, we were noting that there had not been any XX22 rooms reported on the thread, which seemed odd. I will add it to the next map update. I am sure that many would consider that room to have one of the best views MK views.

    Amazing thread! Thanks for all of your hard work.

    Question to all: We're going to book a 2 BR for next May. Without borrowing points, we can book 7 nights in a LV or 8 nights in a SV. Which would you choose? I'm leaning toward the SV to get an extra night and requesting an even # room. I don't care if it's a dedicated or lock-off.
